Not sure how "odd" this is, but I haven't seen too many Crowns like this. It doesn't say crown on the top, but it has it on the swing instead. We don't see many odd oilers in Nebraska, so just curious if there are many like this around?

Thanks,
Chris

I think the early ones are stamped on the lever like yours. Having the 4 hole sight is also an early feature.

I guessed it was probably an early oiler, thanks for confirming that. Are there many of the early ones around? I haven't seen but this one out here?
